    Houdinis 35 truck build

    I got the front suspension on except for the coil over sleves, missing parts are a hold up missing lower arms for rear end too

    so I took the cab off and am doing sound deadening and had a lot of flex on front of roof so I am laying some more glass mat down
    any one got any suggestions on the sound insulation ??? that I might be missing out on ????
    I am planning on a headliner and plan to put some wood around the cab to tack the ends of it

    the body did not slip off as easiy as I thought it would
    hate to disappoint you guys this is not going to have any photos
    sure used up the space in shop quick got about 80 feet used up

    going to get this to a driver this year and do the body and paint next fall and switch to the 347 engine and a gearstar AOD

    got a junked model A with a fresh 302 with a roller cam gonna use carb and stock trans for now

    been having lots of snow, storms and cold weather
    if I spent as much time working on truck as fighting snow and trying to heat shop I would have some progress to report

    sent out my upholstery to get redone, waiting on seat untill I figure out what to do
    filling seams on the splices on the truck cab sanded it down with 40 grit then ground out divots and fill with short strand filler
    then air filed it down and refilled with lightweight filler and am air sanding with air fille
